5 Simple Ways To Increase Your Productivity
How’s your productivity this Monday morning? For me, I occasionally experience what we call Monday blues. However, slowly and surely, I’m developing some formula to eliminate those challenges. You just need to know how to do it and start being productive.
The truth is, there are many ways to increase productivity. No matter what it is that you’re doing online, these tips will help you no matter what. The truth is that focusing and being right on the edge to succeed online requires for you to think deeply and really stay focused. So, to help you out, I would like to share some basic points. Well, here’s exactly 5 ways to increase your productivity that you can start right away.
1. Work in the morning
Usually when you just wake up and you eat breakfast, your mind is stimulated and you end up gaining more focus. So, try working in the morning to see if that works or helps. It helped me for sure and it is my most productive time. I will sort out my work (list it out in my book) and do it one by one. I then cross out those that I have successfully done. I’ll try to make sure I cross all the listed activities. However, I admit that sometimes, there are some activities that I cannot finish in that day, so it will be brought forward to the next day. But, the bottom line is try to fully utilize the morning hours effectively.
2. Remove distractions
Removing distractions is the best way to gain momentum and to stay focused throughout building your campaign. I suggest that you try removing all of the distractions around you like Facebook, checking emails, cell phone, and really spend time on what you’re doing. Just force yourself to stay focus, set 1, 2 or 3 hours to be laser focus on your job, then reward yourself with 30 minutes of leisure or internet. Then, focus on your job again. Then relax again. Repeat this… That’s better than working with constant interruption from the internet and your friends.
When you outsource your work, you give them the responsibility, allowing for you to spend time with your family, or do something else for your business. This is definitely a skill that you must master. How much do you value yourself? Are you worth $10 per hour? $100 per hour? $1000 per hour? You know it yourself. If you consider yourself $100 per hour, you should focus on work that can make you $100 per hour. Stop doing simple and no brainer job. Focus your energy and effort on activities that can make you at par with the $100 per hour rate. Hence, you need to be a good manager in outsourcing your work.
4. Get an education
No matter what kind of online business you’re tying to build, if you get an ebook, join a membership, or seek help on the topic, you can succeed and increase your productivity because of the fact that you’re receiving knowledge which you can implement. So, when you really needed, just invest some money and time to learn more. Get some coaching. Get some training. Get the technical knowledge that can make you more productive, effective and efficient, thus lead you to perhaps the $100 per hour rate (as the previous example). For your information, I invested substantial cash to learn specific knowledge, techniques and skills since the past 4 years. I’m still continuing my education…formally and informally.
If you really want to increase productivity, take a breather every few minutes. Just like everybody else, when you get stuck, there’s no doubt that you won’t be able to get out. To prevent yourself from struggling during those times that you lack focus, relax and take a breather. Relax by having a cup of coffee with your friends, watching movie with your love one, mingle with your kids or playing your favourite sport. This will help you to gain more focus when you go back. Just relax and enjoy…
These tips may not work for everybody, as each person deals with different situations and experiences different things. However, I’m sure you’ll find at least one tip that will help increase your productivity.
